Log Home with basement in the Sequoia National Forest
What makes this Cabin unique
We are walking distance from the Kern River. If your a fly fisherman, this place is perfect for you and your buddy's to get away for the weekend for a nature break. We also have Cannel Trail in front of the house that takes you up into the wilderness.

Most gracious hosts
We had a great time at Joe’s house. We had 20 people fit comfortably in the house. There were 10 adults and 10 teens and the accommodations met our needs. There were tons of comfortable couches in the great room and a perfect porch couch. Dining room was roomy. We used his rafting company for a day on the river. Super fun! He also lent us 8 of his tubes for the day. The private beach was wonderful and not crowded. Loved it! We cooked dinner every night and noticed a few things that would have made it easier: a pitcher, bigger bowls, a grill set, and a bigger dishwasher. The house was clean, but there were spider webs on the windows. Overall, a great experience.
Family vacation to Kernville
Property location was excellent! right up the street from market/deli. Just a few miles from Kernville. House was very spacious! We went with our kids and grand kids. It was quite hot, the swamp cooler kept the house semi cool. It would of been nice if we could of gotten it cooler but, it is a big house. Well stocked with plenty of pans, plates, bowls etc. We couldn't get the cable to work maybe it's not available? This house has a really nice deck on the front porch and all away around the back which was super cool to hang out on. The basement/game room was a nice bonus. Their was a hiking trail only a few houses down that was really fun to hike, we saw lots of deer. This house is just about a mile away from a river rafting area! Owner gave easy directions to access home. We really enjoyed the area and the home! We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the memories!!
The cabin was great
The cabin is great for big groups and there are great hiking trails near by. It's still going through some construction but it was very clean. Joe also put up a Christmas tree for us and it made the cabin feel a lot more festive and homie.
We would definitely stay again
Thanks for the review! Yes.. I am fixing the bar in the basement to make it more awesome. I tried to get that done before you showed up, but I ran out of time. It should be completed here soon. Thanks and take care,
Great place to stay for the price!
This large house was a great place for our family to spend Christmas. The great room with several couches was a wonderful place to gather and the host had put up a beautiful tall Christmas tree for us to enjoy. He was very accommodating and helpful during our stay. That being said I would not describe the place as luxurious. The dishwasher is nonfunctional and the place was not super clean. The basement is very poorly lit. However, overall we enjoyed our stay and it is a super good value.
Thank you for your review. I have fixed the dishwasher and have replaced the lights down stairs in the basement. I am also adding reading lamps into the bedroom for people that like to read as yourselves. This home has been rated the number one home in Riverkern by the local residents.
I have only had my lodge listed for a just over a year now. I am constantly doing upgrades and refinements trying to make this lodge the best that I can. And to make this lodge special to create fond memories for my guests. Prior to your stay I replaced my water heater with a top of the line tankless water heater.
As far as being clean. All our beds are fresh for our guests, extra bed sheets and linens are in the closet, extra clean towels are also in the closet, the bathrooms are scrubbed down, the carpets are vacuumed, the kitchen is cleaned, the refrigerator is cleaned, and the floors are always mopped prior to every stay.
Thank you, for staying in my lodge, Joe
clean, specious and funrnished
This property is exactly as shown in the pics. Owner is friendly answered all our questions in advance. This property is in a small valley surrounded by mountains. Near to river kern. Living and dining area is big. Kids enjoyed a lot. We hiked to a nearby mountain. This is near to Lake Isabella, where we did boating as well. Plenty of utensils, linens provided by the owner. The kitchen is well equipped except dishwasher needs to be fixed and we couldn't operate the ice dispenser in the fridge (maybe because of our lack of knowledge).
But this property requires some maintenance, not all the lights and switches were working but whatever left is enough to light the entire property. Definitely, Basement needs more lights, light on top of the pool table is not working. One of the bedrooms (First floor left) requires curtains otherwise morning sun will wake you :). Ground Floor bedroom's door lock (which opens to the patio) and living room entrance door lock needs repair, it is very hard to lock these doors. Also, top floor bathroom needs one bin.
But we really enjoyed our stay in this property and can come back again.
Thank you for your review. I have fixed the dishwasher and have replaced the lights down stairs in the basement. We have also replaced a couple of those switches that were broken.
The door lock in the master bedroom works and functions properly. I try to show each guest the steps to open and lock the door. I will add the steps on how to lock and unlock the master bedroom french doors. Thank you, Joe
Very clean and comfy!!!
Would stay again for sure!!!
